Opens up opportunities to earn degrees at all levels
As the system of higher learning struggles to adapt to uncertainty and safety concerns during a global pandemic, the need for universities to shift to an online focus has never been greater. As a result, education for working adults is getting difficult. To provide some relief, South Nazarene University (SNU) has announced the expansion of its online course offerings by adding four new online degree programs to enhance its overall portfolio.
Unique solution for adult learners
SNU’s College of Professional and Graduate Studies has been serving adult learners with online course offerings for nearly a decade. The institution is uniquely prepared to quickly add new online programs at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels in order to serve more students. With additional online educational choices, SNU opens up opportunities for more adult students outside the state of Oklahoma to earn degrees at all levels from a Christian university without disrupting their lives.
SNU’s President Dr. Keith Newman said that working adult learners require much more flexible options as they seek supplemental education while juggling careers, families, and the many competing challenges of adulthood.
“Our aim is to accommodate varying needs and busy schedules, making it possible and more convenient for adults from a variety of backgrounds to achieve their educational goals”.
Programs for different life trajectories
SNU’s online programs offer the ultimate flexibility, allowing students to access their classes at any time during the week, instead of requiring them to be online at specific times. In addition, students can benefit from taking only one class at a time and receiving books delivered to their door. The programs are designed to cater to adults working full-time jobs, parents, veterans, and professionals seeking promotions and career changes.
SNU’s degree programs feature multiple start times throughout the year, as well as small class sizes and affordable prices. Undergraduate students can earn up to a year’s worth of free credits for life experiences. programs are taught through Canvas, a popular learning management software.
